Popular Mac and iOS note taking app Simplenote has a new owner. Simperium, the company behind it, is now a part of Automattic, the creator of WordPress. In a blog post on the app’s new site, Simperium co-founders Michael Johnston and Fred Cheng announced the sale and talked a bit about what it means for the future of Simplenote.
According to Johnston and Cheng, Automattic plans to put more resources behind Simplenote development including improvements to Simperium, the data syncing service it utilizes. Automattic was able to secure the Simplenote.com domain and has set up a new blog there — utilizing WordPress, of course — to keep users updated on exactly what to expect from forthcoming releases.
